The Shang Tea Blog

The Shang Tea Blog is the educational arm of the Shang Tea company. We hope to use this space to share more information about tea, chinese tea culture, and industry news.

We are excited to use this blog to engage with other tea drinkers and also to focus on the tea topics that you want to hear about, so please let us know if there is a specific question that you want us to answer!
